GOP: 2 in 3 chance of retaining House according to Boehner
According to House majority leader John Boehner, Republicans have a 2 in 3 chance of retaining the majority status in the House of Representatives. Boehner admits that his party will lose seats in the 2012 election, which will narrow the current GOP majority from the 242-190 advantage they now enjoy. That leaves a 1 in 3 chance the Democrats could win enough seats, according to the majority leader. The Dems need to turnover 25 seats, plus retain the three vacant seats, to become the majority caucus again.
